Sheldon Keefe was probably the last player I expected to successfully go behind the bench and become one of the brightest young coaches in the game.
OK, maybe that’s a little harsh. But he and the rest of the Dave Frost followers who made the 1999-2000 Barrie Colts so, uh, interesting, wouldn’t have been near the top of the list.
So when the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds hired Keefe Monday to replace fired coach Mike Stapleton, undoubtedly many eyebrows across the country darted upwards in disbelief.
